Buyer's Brokerage Fee

* Combined DOM (CDOM) counts the total days on market for each time a property is listed, and continues counting until the property is Canceled/Expired for 90 days, no matter which agent or broker lists the property. This figure presents a truer picture of time on market because agents sometimes "re-list" a property after it has been on the market a while to try to “refresh” the Days on Market count, or sellers may change agents when a property has failed to sell.
